Ingrid Bergman

Bergman, Ingrid (1917–84), Swedish stage and screen actress. In 1936 she came to the attention of Hollywood with the film A Woman's Face. She went to the United States in 1939 and soon became a star. Her fresh style was shown to advantage in such films as Intermezzo (1939), Gaslight (1944), for which she won an Academy Award, and Notorious (1946). In 1950 her love affair with the Italian director Roberto Rossellini led to her ostracism from Hollywood. She married and later divorced Rossellini, returning to the United States with the film Anastasia (1956), for which she won a second Academy Award. Returning to the stage in the 1960s, Bergman was acclaimed for her performances in Turgenev's A Month in the Country in London and Eugene O'Neill's More Stately Mansions on Broadway.
